Background The prevalence of lower urinary tract symptoms was determined by survey as an initial step in estimating the significance of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in Asia and Australia. 
Prevalence of lower urinary tract symptoms in a community‐based survey of men in Turkey
TLDR
The frequency of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) is determined, the impact of LUTS on quality of life (QOL) and the results with recent reports from other population‐based studies are compared. Expand

New Alternative Treatments for Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms Secondary to Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
TLDR
The transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) offered another option between watchful waiting and open prostatectomy, though this procedure continued to have an elevated morbidity and even mortality. Expand

Estimate Criteria for Diagnosis and Severity in Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
Background: Standard severity criteria for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) are needed to facilitate clinical and epidemiologic investigations in the common terminology.
Results of an epidemiological survey using a modified American Urological Association symptom index for benign prostatic hyperplasia in France.
TLDR
Estimation indicated that in 1992 approximately 1.14 million French men had moderate to severe urinary symptoms that were likely to be associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia, which was higher than previous estimates due to differences in sampling design and diagnostic criteria. Expand
'Prostate-related symptoms' in Canadian men 50 years of age or older: prevalence and relationships among symptoms.
TLDR
A clear typology of men with BPH symptoms could prove useful if treatments were found to be more effective for certain types of BPH Symptoms, and further investigation into the differential effects of management approaches according to symptom clusters is warranted. Expand
High prevalence of benign prostatic hypertrophy in the community
There is a strong suspicion among urologists that the prevalence of benign prostatic hyperplasia is higher than has been reported in clinical retrospective and necropsy studies. To find out theExpand
Epidemiology of bladder emptying symptoms in elderly men.
We provide estimates of the prevalence, incidence and remission of difficult bladder emptying symptoms (prostatism) among noninstitutionalized men 60 years old and older living in a community in theExpand
The prevalence of prostatism: a population-based survey of urinary symptoms.
TLDR
The specific urinary symptoms of nocturia, weak stream, restarting, urgency and sensation of incomplete emptying are strongly age-related and, therefore, may be predictive of a prostatic disease process. Expand
Natural history of benign prostatic hyperplasia: appropriate case definition and estimation of its prevalence in the community.
TLDR
Prevalence rates of benign prostatic hyperplasia depend very much on the parameters used in a case definition, and follow-up will establish which men will eventually request a workup and treatment for BPH and will help determine the best clinical definition. Expand
Symptoms and signs of prostatism as risk factors for prostatectomy
TLDR
This is the first study to document the extent to which urologic symptoms and a digital rectal examination predict subsequent prostatectomy for BPH. Expand
The influence of patient education level on the International Prostatic Symptom Score.
TLDR
This study suggests that illiterate patients were not able to answer the questionnaire but with the help of professional medical personnel the I-PSS could be extended to this group of patients without impairing the quality. Expand
Similarity of the American Urological Association Symptom Index among men with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), urethral obstruction not due to BPH and detrusor hyperreflexia without outlet obstruction.
TLDR
The AUA Symptom Index does not specifically identify BPH or bladder outlet obstruction, and the index cannot differentiate the site of obstruction as noted by the similar scores among men with BPH from those with bladder neck obstruction and urethral strictures. Expand
